Eight-Stone Press Publishes SMILE, HON No. 12

BALTIMORE – Shakedowns, drug busts and old bones in the cellar are but a few nuggets unearthed in the "urban terrarium" of Smile, Hon, You’re in Baltimore! No. 12, edited by William P. Tandy and published by Eight-Stone Press.

In this issue, JEANNIE HEGARTY clears her calendar for a drug bust next door; JOE HIGLER consoles a hometown son-made-good on a tragic anniversary; BEN SHABERMAN fancies himself a 2A contender; fate deals RAHNE ALEXANDER a flush; and LISA SINGER decides Baltimore is as far south as she’s willing to work, plus a whole lot more. Other contributors include:

A release party featuring author readings, a live performance by the Wild Bonerz, refreshments and more will be held beginning at approximately 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 10, at Cyclops Books and Music, 30 W. North Avenue (at the intersection of Maryland Avenue), Baltimore, Maryland 21201.

From the harbor to the hills, the submission-based Smile, Hon, You’re in Baltimore! collects the tales of those on whom Mobtown has left her indelible mark: polished, professional essays; barroom sermons delivered from the sanctity of a favorite stool; the poet's fleeting sentiment captured in both word and snapshot – a slice of Baltimore as told by Baltimore, presented with the time-honored, DIY accessibility of a limited-run, handcrafted zine. A two-time Utne Independent Press Award nominee, Smile, Hon has also been dubbed "Best Zine" by both Baltimore Magazine (2008) and Baltimore City Paper (2004).

Smile, Hon, You’re in Baltimore! is an Eight-Stone Press production and is distributed by Atomic Books (Baltimore); Cyclops Books (Baltimore); Microcosm Publishing (Bloomington, IN, and Portland, OR); Quimby's (Chicago) and Red Emma's Bookstore Coffeehouse (Baltimore).
